I was looking for a breakfast cake recipe to try with the last of the peaches from our tree and found this pound cake recipe.  I decided to double the recipe and then I accidentally quadrupled the honey rather than simply doubling it – oops! – and my kids thought it was delicious.  Of course.  :)  Since I had added extra honey I thought I’d add a little coconut flour to give the cake more body.  So here’s what I did:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup honey (next time I will use no more than 3/4 cup)
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda

I melted the butter and coconut oil together and added to the other liquid ingredients, then added the dry ingredients and poured into a greased 9″ x 7″ baking pan.  I baked at 350 degrees Fahrenheit but the top browned VERY quickly at that temp (next time I won’t go higher than 325 degrees).  The result was a nice dense cake that would be great with strawberries and whipped cream (or whipped coconut cream).  I think you could easily use all coconut oil if you need to stay dairy-free.  Also, halving this recipe and baking in a loaf pan would work very well.
